When Schrader is at his best, he writes of lonely male despair and the empty dream of a modern meaningful death better than anyone in film.
A powerful story about guilt, depression, and loss of hope.
A really well done, and complicated way of asking “what would Jesus do?”
Aside from a rather poor scene near the end, this movie was fantastic.
Unique film with an interesting viewpoint
Bleak film with a mesmerizing dominance of weirdness. Climate change fears and an increasing crisis of faith. Hawke is splendid.
Stunningly morbid, capitalised by a brilliant lead performance from Hawke.
Tackles religion, climate change, love & despair in a most intriguing way. Definitely a great watch to contemplate on its questions for days
A contemporary morality tale confronting themes of climate change, infidelity and devotion to another person and to God. Ethan Hawke slays
Hawke is excellent, the music when it happens is haunting, and in a positive sense, it was reminiscent for me of both Fargo and Calvary.
